Notes & Reviews:

London-born Robert Docker was one of British light music's primary champions as a performer, both in this country and latterly in Australia. His compositions have become standards in the genre, although perhaps it is for his arrangements that he was best known and loved. He wrote and orchestrated music for radio broadcast and for the cinema, including part of the score for "Chariots of Fire".

Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: David Presley (oboe); William Davies (piano).
